Summary note
"Refugees and Gender: Law and Process" examines how those representing asylum seekers can ensure that all gender-related aspects of an asylum claim are considered and appropriately reflected in the determination process. The book aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the concepts of gender-related persecution, as well as a gendered framework for the interpretation of the key elements of the 1951 Refugee Convention. Detailed information is provided on the implications of gender in asylum law, policy and practice in the UK, with comparative case-law and materials from other countries including Canada, US and Australia.
